After a decade as a Republican Georgia lawmaker, former Lieutenant Governor Geoff Duncan has joined CNN as an on-air political commentator focusing on national politics.

Duncan joins CNN after serving as the state’s 12th Lieutenant Governor and six years in the Georgia House of Representatives.

He previously played six seasons in the minor league system of the Florida Marlins’ organization.

Duncan, an outspoken critic of former president Donald Trump, announced his intention not to run for another term in 2022.

He says CNN is a good national platform for him to spread his conservative message for where he thinks the GOP needs to go to be successful.

“When that camera turns on, I don’t have any sort of hidden agenda, I just want to share a conservative angle,” said Duncan. “I think what makes me a little bit different is I’m very conservative. I’m just not angry about it.”

Duncan joined WABE’s “All Things Considered” to talk about his view of the Republican party and his new role at CNN.
